Startups invited to present today are working on:

Startups with new technologies and innovation that rely on fixed or wireless telecom networks who are ready to scale with corporate partners and investors are encouraged to apply to pitch on this or a future agenda here.


Connected Car is a topic every carrier spent years thinking about as entire divisions were born in optimism that telematics could bring sizable revenue to carriers. Now, most of those telematics divisions are gone, just as the real opportunity seems to be insight.
